Virgin Sunflower Oil

Sunflower oil is pressed from the seeds of the sunflower. The oil is used as medicine. Sunflower oil is used for constipation and lowering "bad" LDL cholesterol. Some people apply sunflower oil directly to the skin for poorly healing wounds, skin injuries, psoriasis, and arthritis, and as a massage oil. In foods, sunflower oil is used as a cooking oil. The oil is light to taste and is therefore preferred for cooking in many regions throughout the world. Sunflower oil is preferred over many other oils like canola oil, safflower oil, corn oil, and olive oil, because of its light taste and flavor. Sunflower oil benefits extend to the skin as well. Since it has smoothening properties and a long shelf life, it is also perfect for cosmetic formulations.
